Valentino Rossi and his Opel Adam

Moto GP star Valentino Rossi has designed a special one-off Opel Adam, with the funds raised from its sale at auction being donated to charity. The supermini features exclusive styling and decals visioned by Rossi along with the help of designer Aldo Drudi.

Opel brand ambassador Valentino Rossi added his own personal touch with his racing number 46 pasted across the side of the car, as well as his signature being written across the bonnet. Inside, the seats have been finished in Dainese leather, mimicking a motorcycle suit.
